maintains that shroud of secrecy while. they were it happened so that for centuries korea was detached from the rest of the outside world this has to do with the fact that back in the middle ages that frequently suffered from invasions by the mongols and japanese this convince the ruling class that the country would live better if it reduced its contacts with the surrounding countries to a minimum as a result koreans were even banned from setting up settlements in certain locations particularly on the sea shore the information in flow was controlled and restricted when japan occupied korea in the early twentieth century this policy was preserved by the occupants in order to retain this colony under its control the first thing japan did was to take all the foreign relations of korea under its control and start the japanese ation of korea the koreans were forced to adopt japanese names not to speak the korean language under japanese language was proclaimed official and so forth all this dark legacy both historical and cultural has to
a great extent affected the views of the korean leaders. but not only is korea an informational mystery it's also one of the very few remaining iowa of socialism communism how does it maintain to do that more of. the fact of the matter is that the koreans proved to be very consistent in their convictions korea as with china is a confucian country where confucianism dominates the thinking of the habits of the people to quote one example when china had given up most of the confucian traditions korea was rigorously following them all the same so when chinese scientists wanted to find some information about confucian rituals they had to go to seoul for the relevant documents it so happened that when the northern part of korea came to believe in communism and socialism it became an even greater teacher of a than the soviet union itself and other socialist countries which have already given up this ideology and system while in korea just like in china they are still
trying to build socialism in the korean fashion their own model of socialism. but today in the twenty first century way economic ties parallel world do you think that this policy of isolation will help north korea progress economically. that are there is no doubt that the country needs its foreign economic relations expanded as according to estimates by foreign specialists and the understanding cerned by north korea itself it would be impossible to modernize the economy without investment from outside i would like to draw your attention to something i find very interesting there has been much talk in the west about north korea opening up and its integration into the world community however real policy is very often at odds with statements some sort of best styria broke out in the media recently around the fact of the swedish department store began selling jeans manufactured in north korea if the west is really interested in north korea
developing some industries fit to enter foreign markets and thus having people interested in contacts with the outside world or going without what's trapped with the selling of a batch of jeans polls to the western world safety and well being it will be absolutely and significant in terms of economic competition the same applied to the joint north and south korean industrial complex in case on a free trade agreement was signed between b.o.'s and south korea several years ago which has not yet been ratified but the refusal of the us to include spoons and forks and other consumer goods manufactured in that area into the agreement was one of the stumbling blocks the us did not agree for a few million dollars to enter the markets and yet it's hard to imagine how this could threaten the u.s. and world economies like that. so in your opinion it's beneficial in some ways for certain countries like the united states for example to
have korea isolated. so the loser but. unfortunately we have to draw this conclusion we cannot explain everything entirely by north korea's might of course much depends on the past on the traditions on the fear of opening up because that may lead to undesirable political consequences on the other hand when they say north korea needs to become a civilized country and to be integrated into the world community they're never too keen really to do things to let it happen what's more the west and the united states in particular need a bad guy in that region to justify their military presence in the southern part of the korean peninsula and to perm and deploying their missile defense systems there that's something that's been done there and somewhat more actively done in europe indeed until now the u.s. and allied military presence in the region was justified by the soviet threat but it's been twenty years now since the soviet union however the u.s. is not going to give up their military alliances established during the cold war
now it's very convenient to have a bad guy in pyongyang that can be used as a scapegoat for everything now it seems ok to have talks with russia or china and smile and keep face saying because of kim jong il we have to keep our troops and send our aircraft carriers there. on the north korean threat is appears this face will be hard to keep as it will be clear who the troops on the missile defense are actually saying that it will be obvious that it's not against north korea weakened and worn out by long economic turmoil but against a rising china and russia as well. so recent statements from people like former president jimmy carter who went to korea and said that he saw signs of north korea willing to work with the six party talks and take steps toward denuclearizing itself do you think that's just good p.r.
worth i think that carter sense the. moved to north korea he's an experienced politician has been there more than once the thing is that north korea realizes that without an agreement with the united states it won't be able to solve its main problem the removal of the military threats north korea was really frightened by the events in iraq in yugoslavia when the us unilaterally change the regimes in both those countries even without the consent of the united nations north korea is really afraid of that secondly it's aware that due to the u.s. sanctions it will have difficulties to get money from international financial institutions and other countries to modernize its economy this explains the fact that north korea is quite consistently pursuing the policy of signing bilateral agreements first and foremost with the u.s. and then a multilateral agreements such as those produced by the six party talks north korea demands that they should have talks with the u.s. and then proceed further north korea views the u.s. as posing the biggest threat and believes that the main obstacle for their economic
development comes from the u.s. standing in the way of international aid. let's try and move from a economical and political war towards the personal you've spent so much time in north korea i believe you've even met kim jong il personally what kind of a man is has. been your i met kim jong il both as a journalist and a diplomat in particular during the then president putin's visit to north korea in two thousand carefully read what a number of state leaders who met him as a president wrote about him. wanted to say that kim jong il appears is an energetic and informed person who knows what he does and knows what to strive for i think that the stereotypes appearing regularly in western and frankly also in russian publications about some unpredictable politician and regime are absolutely ungrounded because an irrational and unpredictable politician would hardly be able to hold power in his hands for the past two decades when many revolutions broke out
and many countries actually disappeared money expected the north korean regime to fall however for a number of reasons including purely pragmatic and realistic policy and the ability to outplay the enemy even though in some small things the north korean regime managed to survive. and you mentioned that the north korean leader knows what he wants for his country and from his country he's calling a party meeting that hasn't been held in thirty years and many in the west specifically are very excited trying to guess why exactly or what he's trying to tell the world by doing that what do you think at the purpose of the conference and the workers' party. where you if the good. if we talk about detail the only thing known to be on the agenda of the forthcoming conference are the elections for the governing bodies of the ruling party and it really makes sense for it's been forty
four years since the previous conference and thirty years since the previous party congress money leaders who used to be members of the governing politburo in secretariat have died the central committee must by now have less than half the men from the original list so it appears to be high time for elections the second thing on the agenda which is perhaps the key thing is about a successor to the incumbent leader it's no secret that there have been many reports about his weakened health at the same time though many people who have met i'm including people from russia and in particular cultural figures who often go. there believe those rumors are exaggerated but i can't rule out the possibility that kim jong il has begun to ponder about his possible successor who would have to lead the country after he himself leaves the political arena i don't think the conference is due to pronounce on even as a successor most likely such a person would simply be elected into the government which will allow him to prove
his eligibility by his achievements in areas he would be in charge of. now if kim jong il decides to follow in his father's footsteps and name his son as his successor there's very little known about the man what do we know who is he what does he what does he what have what he bring to north korea. first of all i think we shouldn't expect any dramatic changes right away because power in north korea is built on succession and continuity principles kim jong il became a leader first and foremost thanks to his image of a true follower of his father's legacy and ideas not of some destroyer of the foundations or the person to lead the country's policy into a sharp turn so obviously the same is going to apply to kim jong il successor if it should be one of his sons for example i shall not make any predictions as to which of them it could be but all there is much talk about the kurds on anyway this would be a young person who hasn't earned much authority in the party or the country and it
is not very widely known and i don't think that kim jong il is going to quit entirely now he will continue ruling the country as long as his health from the circumstances allow that's why the decisions to be made by the conference will in their essence be shaping the environment under circles loyal to the new successor some advisors who will guide them through the challenging situation north korea is in these days at the beginning of the twenty first century.
